"He’s not the first whom we’ve managed to call, and not the last… Of course, you can’t pull off such a stunt in just one call, you need to make at least several phone calls," he said.
The prankster also said that some heads of state actually use cell phones.
"We’ve managed to make a call to Poroshenko once. We even managed to reach him when he was aboard a plane to the US, over the Atlantic," Stolyarov added.
The prankster pointed out that there in fact are numerous ways to get hold of a VIP by phone.
Meanwhile, a source in the Erdogan’s administration told RIA Novosti that the reports about a prank pulled on the Turkish leader are fake.
"I didn’t hear anything about this phone call, and besides, you can’t reach the president so easily. I believe that this is a fake, as there are special communication channels and procedures established for such talks," the source said.
